The Heat are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Celtics are 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win. The over is 5-0 in Heat last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Celtics last 4 overall. The Heat are 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Boston.
The Boston Celtics look like they're starting to put things together, they're the healthier team here, and the Heat just played three overtimes on Saturday night. The Celtics should be favored. However, we've seen the Heat come through time and time again in spots they probably shouldn't, and they've played well on the road where they're also 15-11 against the spread. The Heat are too good and too consistent to turn down in the underdog role. Give me the points.
